Remove Computer Virus Raleigh
Odds are REAL good that your Raleigh computer WILL get a computer virus at some point during its lifetime. Odds are actually real good that it will get more than one. Computer viruses come from email virus attacks, infected websites (it can even happen on large well-known websites), infected USB drives, general infected files are shared on your home network – and so many ways.
Honestly, the only way to guarantee that you will never get a computer virus is to never connect to the internet, never put your computer on ANY sort of network and generally don’t do a thing with it except run it as a standalone machine. And how many of us WANT a computer for THAT? Let Raleigh Geeks get your computer geared up for working on the internet as safely as possible – and we’ll be there when and if that computer virus hits!
We Remove Computer Viruses
We scan and rescan your computer with various pieces of professional antivirus software. We work on your computer until WE are sure that your computer virus is gone! As well, having done this for years, we know how computer viruses work – how they go about infecting your machine, what the tell-tale signs are and how to stop them.
Computer Viruses hide everywhere
When it comes down to it, good computer virus writers have to know a lot about your system to make their computer viruses work. That’s why computer viruses can be so difficult to remove for the average computer user. Virus writers know YOUR computer better than you do at the operating system level. But, at Raleigh Geeks, WE know your computer too. Whether there’s a boot virus hanging out waiting for you to fire up your laptop, a few quietly hiding registry entries waiting for you, a bogus DLL or more, a temp file lurking – we know your computer OS inside and out. And we will FIND and REMOVE the computer virus.
Repairing Computer Virus Damage
The one unknown when a virus hits your computer is just how much damage it may do to your computer before it is removed. Some are there to just collect your information – spyware for example – and don’t really cause too much damage UNLESS they DO manage to get too much of your personal info. Others are hijackers. Those computer viruses tend to direct all web traffic to someplace that you really didn’t want to go – and there’s no telling what damage and other viruses may be pushed onto your computer where they end up.
Some computer viruses hide, but don’t delete, your personal files. Your desktop icons may disappear. Your “My Documents” may disappear, etc. In many cases they have just been hidden from your view. But other viruses tend to be much more destructive and actively DELETE your files. In some cases, the virus may not be written correctly and will inadvertently destroy your files.
We Protect Your Data!
Whatever computer damage you may have, virus or otherwise, we take the time necessary to really look over your computer and files and save whatever we can. We don’t just arbitrarily tell you that you have a virus and we’re going to have to wipe out your hard drive and reinstall the operating system. That seems to be a favorite solution of some of our “big box” competitors. Oh yeah, and by the way, that will delete all your information (even if it wasn’t really destroyed to begin with). Wiping out and reinstalling your operating system is a LAST resort with Raleigh Geeks – and then ONLY when we have saved whatever documents we can for you. We know how much your personal stuff means to you and we do EVERYTHING that we can to make sure it stays safe!
